to denver and go to two npr reporters, scott horsily, has the reporting from president obama's campaign, and ari shapiro has been traveling with mitt romney. hi, guys. ari shapiro, did your guy do what he came to do tonight? >> well, mitt romney had to stand on the stage and look presidential and a plausible alternative to president obama. he certainly cleared that bar. i think in many people's thought he went beyond, control the stage, giving memorable lines and standing up to the president, and occasionally the moderator in kind of an aggressive way. >> woodruff: scott what, about the president? you've been out on the trail listening to him. what differences? what similarities did you see tonight? >> well, he was really trying to get mitt romney to give some specifics about what het would mean for his tax pran. what would his changes to dodd-frank mean? what would his repeal of obamacare mean? he didn't hear the specifics. and i think the memorable line from president obama is,s romney keing these details quiet because they're too good for the middle class? >> woodruff: are you-- i me

are continuing the coverage of the presidential debate in denver. one question is what role the government plays in our lives. we've seen that role increase dramatically over the past four years with the obama presidency. how much is legitimate? how much is considered not legitimate by the voting public? a lot of people think that people have been persuaded by the degree to which the government has got involved in people's lives. other people say the tea party rebellion stirred up resentment towards the role of the government. let's ask the former office depot ceo, and we are pleased to welcome you now. steve, good to see you, thanks for being here. >> good to be here, david. david: the republican message, what's he got to make clear about the limit of the role of the government in our lives? >> well, i think if you talk to most business people, they say there's three legitimate roles for government in business. the first is regulation. from a regulatory stand point, the role of the government is to level the playing field, establish the boundaries, make sure that consumers are not getting hurt,

in november. chuck todd joins us from the debate site at the university of denver. chuck, what are you watching for tonight? >> the buzz word, the buzz phrase of "middle class." essentially, the reason romney is behind is because he's been losing that attribute to president obama by double-digit margins. i think it's been the most important attribute of the campaign, because it explains why is the president in a tough economic times, why has he been winning or at least neutralizing the economic argument and staying ahead in the polls. it's because he has been winning that attribute, if you will, of who's more in touch with the middle class, who looking out for the middle class. obviously, 47% was a huge body blow to romney. he was already in a deficit on this issue, of not being, looking out for the middle guy. so that, to me, is sort of how does romney try to deal with this tonight? he's been trying to deal with it for the last ten days, ever since the 47% comment came out. how he tries to do it. they acknowledge, the romney campaign, that this is their number one goal tonight. yes, i

unique opinion on what what might have gone wrong here. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust-- >> cenk: was that attack--there are a million things that went wrong. that's not why president obama lost over all but was that a mistake to go that late into denver. >> people do get altitude sickness, even sometimes at a mile high, but i think it was reflective of a bigger problem. president obama was being the president. he doesn't have to spend an entire day or day in denver. 's the president. if you watched him last night that's what he behaved like. a guy who for four years has gone unchallenged at least in the same room with anyone. his demeanor, his answers from exactly what you saw during presidential press conference over the last few years. that's the way he responded to romney, to whom he barely acknowledged. he was acting like this was just you know, something that he didn't have to deign to do. that was a huge mistake. it

and the university of denver. 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. i want to wish you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system froze up. because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come back. housing has begun to rise. we have a lot of work to do. the question here is not where we have been but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skew toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations, we will be better off. i have a different view. we have to invest in education and training. it is important to develop new sources of oil in america, change our tax code to help small businesses and companies investing in
